Written by Catherine Hewitt. “Renoir’s Dancer” is the biography of the daughter of a provincial linen maid who became famous as a model for the Impressionists and later as a painter in her own right.

The meeting will begin with a virtual presentation by Schultze, professor emeritus, The Sage Colleges in Troy, N.Y. She has also served as a Clark Art Institute Education Department docent for four years and her love of the works of Renoir intensified after leading talks during the Clark’s exhibition “Renoir: The Body, The Senses” in 2019.

Attendees are not required to read the book to join the meetings, which is supported by ATT-Texins Association Inc.
